Development projects in Sindh

As per press report, Mumtaz Bhutto, chief of Sindh National Front (SNF) has said that Nawaz Sharif is not “anti-Sindhi” whereas he is preparing for merger of his party into PML–N in near future.

Mumtaz Bhutto who is a seasoned politicians may be right but the people of Sindh generally want to ask him three questions to reply in order to supplement his claim:

1. Why Nawaz Sharif did not launch any mega development project in Sindh during his two tenures as Prime Minister (total period about six years)?

2. Why did Nawaz Sharif abandon two mega development projects launched by Shaheed Benazir Bhutto in Sindh like Keti Bunder and Thar Coal Project?

3. Why is he not convincing his younger brother Shahbaz Sharif, chief minister of Punjab not to object on release of at least 10 MAF water Kotri downstream as envisaged in “Water Accord – 1991” to avoid further environmental disaster and human tragedy in Sindh? I hope that Mumtaz Bhutto or Mian Nawaz Sharif would like to reply in detail to satisfy people of Sindh.
